Parksite, Inc. announced they will distribute and market the DuPont Tyvek Fluid Applied WB+ System, the next generation of fluid applied air/water barriers in the portfolio of DuPont Building Envelope products. DuPont has taken the performance of traditional DuPont Tyvek Fluid Applied products and developed a DuPont Tyvek Fluid Applied WB+ System, combining air and water barrier and vapor permeability, into a reformulated fluid-applied membrane for ease of use on most commercial substrates.
“We are extremely excited to be launching Dupont Tyvek Fluid Applied WB+ for commercial construction. This next generation product provides a durable, weather barrier with enhanced spray characteristics–for fast, effective application in nearly any weather condition, saving our customers time and money, “ said Craig Wheatley, director of market development. He further adds, “Our team of certified specialists is trained and ready to hit the road with field training opportunities to help get our customers up to speed on this new offering from DuPont.”
DuPont Tyvek Fluid Applied WB+ System helps prevent air and water leakage at the vertical walls of the building envelope, allowing for more sustainable structures through enhanced energy efficiency and can provide protection from mold and mildew. It performs well in extreme conditions and can withstand nine months of UV exposure, therefore enabling flexibility sometimes needed in construction schedules. The Fluid Applied system can be installed in temperatures as low as 25 degrees, and since it is moisture cured, can even be installed when precipitation is in the forecast. DuPont backs the DuPont Tyvek Fluid Applied WB+ System with a 10-year limited warranty and employs the Certified Installer Program on the correct installation of products.
